    I didn't think that this issue could come close to being as good as the first one, but I was wrong. So. So. Wrong. DeMatteis & Baldeon hit every high spot and sink every shot in this issue. Complete and total home run. Read Full Review

    Ben Reilly: Spider-Man is a mix of intense action with psychological elements and character development. The second issue in the series features Scorpion and further examination of what it means to be an imposter Spider-Man who is a well-rounded person. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Feb 23, 2022

    Ben Reilly: Spider-Man #2 is a terrific second part. The best thing about this issue, in particular, is it demonstrates just how different Ben is going to be than Peter is as Spider-Man. From his personality to his mental state to even the relationship between protagonist and plot, this is a unique hero. DeMatteis didnt just replace Peter Parker in a like-for-like swap, this is a story about one of the most unique and beloved characters in comics. Read Full Review
